Tekni-Plex has acquired US-based induction seals and foam closure liners producer BrunaSeals for an undisclosed sum.
Based in BrunaSeals of Doral, BrunaSeals produces induction seals and foam closure liners for beverage, cosmetics, pharma and household and industrial chemical products.
Tekni-Plex will include BrunaSeals in its global closure liners business unit Tri-Seal.
BrunaSeal, which sells its core induction seal and foam closure liners under the ProTecSeals brand, is specialized in embossing, printing, foil stamping, die cutting, removal and closure lining capabilities.
The company produces LuxeSeal and SniffSeal specialty platforms, which will allow brand owners to enhance the shelf-presence of their products.
Tri-Seal senior vice president and general manager David Andrulonis said: “BrunaSeal’s expertise in supporting the Latin American market place, coupled with its innovative product line, will help further expand the global Tri-Seal closure liner business.
“The combined capabilities create an even stronger liners portfolio from which to service brand owners around the world.”
BrunaSeals president and founder Juan Bruna will continue to lend his support to expand the operations of Tri-Seal business unit.
Bruna said: “We couldn’t be happier to become part of a leading global manufacturer who is committed to growing its closure liner and seal business. Our collective customers will benefit significantly from this acquisition,”
Earlier, Tekni-Plex also acquired three other closure liner business units, including US firms Sancap and Tech-Seal, and India-based Ghiya Extrusions.
Tri-Seal produces closure liners and seals for glass, metal and plastic containers, which can be used in different product applications such as pharmaceutical, nutraceuticals, personal care, food/beverage and household/industrial.
Tekni-Plex develops and produces packaging materials, medical compounds and precision-crafted medical tubing solutions for the medical, pharmaceutical, personal care, household and industrial, and food and beverage industries.
